Good times for sure! Some of my favorite memories are from the years 84-89 when I went there. It was when I really became a deadhead too. A lot of who I am today stems from the choices I made there, for good or ill. (mostly good, I feel) I went back to the happy valley visiting friends till about 92 but haven't been there since. And every time I'm home in NH visiting family, I always want to make the trip down memory lane for a look around and to show my wife and kids Amherst and Northampton. Haven't made it yet, hopefully this coming summer. Unfortunately it won't be during the date of that concert or I would definitely go to the show there.

Yeah, polarized, I was there from 88-93. I was living in Northeast at the time you were probably there. I didn't get into the Dead until much later, though, much to my chagrin. I visited Amherst about 3 years ago. For all it's changed, there's a lot that is the same, like the residence halls. Take care.
